Method describing automated way to Initiate Note Taking On the Go
When one wants to make some notes, first operation would be to open a text editor. After deciding on what editor to open, the user has to launch the editor using the short cut or a standard mechanism offered by the editor.

The innovation described below avoids this by presenting a mechanism to automatically determine and initiate note taking. The user is avoided the hassle of using additional shortcuts that the text editor offers or using any other standard mechanism to launch an editor.

When a user starts typing on the keyboard, automatic note taking is initiated without user having to explicitly open an editor and then start typing his notes.

This is to determine when to initiate note taking and set up the necessary editor to capture the notes. This innovation works in the context of a Computer System connected with a Keyboard.

This involves determining if any text editor is an active window and in a state to take notes as it is typed on the keyboard. In the absence of such active window, the system looks for keyboard input matching to a word in the dictionary and invokes a specific pre-configured editor and brings a new file page with the typed content as part of it.
